"Although foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations negatively impacted our reported sales, we continue to see maintenance product sales growth in local currencies in nearly all our markets," said Garry Ridge, WD-40 Company's president and chief executive officer. "Our European markets, in particular, continue to be heavily impacted by the weakening of the euro against the pound sterling as well as the strength of the U.S. dollar. When we remove all foreign currency exchange rate impacts, we grew consolidated sales by about half a percentage point which is a little lighter than we would have liked to see. This was caused by the timing of customer orders and promotional activities as well as unstable market conditions in Russia. While we expect we will continue to see fluctuations in the performance of certain markets quarter to quarter, our long-term growth plans remain unchanged," continued Ridge.
